For the musicians out there:

“Afraid of Loving You” is closely related to the songs I recorded for “The MZTRIO Live Studio Sessions“. I love songs in the key of Em because I get to play a lot of open strings, especially the low E-string, which sounds great in the chorus. The tension between the dynamics of the verse and beginning of the chorus always pumps me up when I listen to this songs.
This was the first track for which I ever used my “Ice Blue Metallic” strat, which has an extremely thick neck and Van Zandt True Vintage pickups.

For the music lovers:

I started playing around with this one in 2009 and even recorded a video of me playing an acoustic version. I finished the lyrics while working alongside the producer of “In a Minute“, Luis “Granja” Venturin, on a really heavy record for another artist, and the first time I played him the song, we both new it was definitely going to be on my next album. I love playing this one live!

lyrics

Take all that you want to
Take all that you can
Don’t feel tricked
Into making me a better man

Maybe I’m afraid of loving you
Maybe you just think you’re supposed to
Maybe we’ll be fine if ever we’re apart
Then again, maybe we won’t

Pretending you want me
Pretending you care
I’m sick of pretending
It just isn’t fair

I look in the mirror
After I look in your eyes
I see through myself
I see through our lies

Maybe I’m afraid of loving you
Maybe you just think you’re supposed to
Maybe we’ll be fine if ever we’re apart
Then again, maybe we won’t

Maybe I’m afraid of loving you
Maybe you just think you’re supposed to
Maybe we’ll be fine if ever we’re apart
Then again, maybe we won’t

Maybe I’m afraid of loving you
Maybe you just think you’re supposed to
Maybe we’ll be fine if ever we’re apart
As a matter of fact, I’m sure we will
I’m sure we will
I’m sure we will
